“You can do exactly what you like, as long as you do it with a smile.” So says the astonishing Mr Smyle on welcoming Alice, Miles, Joe and Odi to his equally astonishing castle. On the face of it, the children should have plenty to smile about – if only they could find their parents. Will their new friend help them in their quest? Can he protect them from Elymas and the evil nunjas? When you’re the richest and most important man in the world, nothing is impossible. Or is it? Keep up with Alice’s social diary, marvel at Miles’ moneymaking skills, meet the hapless Captain Catastrophe and, above all, look out for the sharks!
